Every January, millions of Australian children go back to school. It’s an exciting time with freshly laminated books and new stationery sets. However, while our kids are busy doing their spelling bees and times tables, it’s also important for them to be aware of their own health and wellbeing.

Kids don’t often think about the impact that common activities like sitting in a classroom, carrying a heavy school bag, or even excessive screen time can have on their overall health.

This is why we’re providing our patients with a helpful ‘Back to School Health Checklist’ that they can tick off with their children.

The checklist, developed as part of the Australian Chiropractors Association’s (ACA) Back to School Campaign, is a great way to encourage kids to build healthy habits both at school and at home.

They are quick and simple to follow and can be easily incorporated into your child’s everyday routine. For instance, packing a healthy lunch filled with lots of fruit and veggies, getting plenty of daily exercise, and wearing their backpack correctly by carrying them with both straps over the shoulders and with the buckles properly secured at the front.

The Health Checklist also reminds kids to reduce their recreational screen time, sit correctly in the classroom and consider chiropractic care.

Pick up your complimentary ‘Back to School’ Health Checklist from us today, or if you are concerned about your child’s spine or any other back to school related activities, book an appointment with us at Impulse Chiropractic.
